Hello to everyone,
I hope this e-mail finds each of you in good health.
I am pleased to announce that I have been asked by Epic Photo Tours to join forces and lead a photography tour to Myanmar in February 2015.
We’ll be constantly surrounded by photo opportunities as we photograph the incredible pagodas in Bagan, the one legged fisherman on Inle Lake, take the local circle train in Yangon and immerse ourselves in Buddhist culture in Mandalay. On Inle Lake we’ll visit remote Indein and photograph the ruined pagodas as well as the weekly markets. In Yangon we will explore the old Indian quarter, the fish market, and capture the Schwedagon Pagoda at sunset.
This experience is far more than being at the right place at the right time and occasionally relying on lady luck to come across the ideal subject or location. We will have model shoots at a Mandalay monastery, early morning and sunset photo shoots on top of the less visited pagodas.
If you love markets, indigenous people, a sense of curiosity about exploring a country that was closed for 65 years and have the ability to be spontaneous, you will love this once in a lifetime experience.
The itinerary has been carefully planned, and the hotels, tour guides, restaurants and flow of the trip has been constructed so that we will be away from the crowds of tourists and able to capture exhibition worthy photographs.
During our trip our support crew will carry our tripods so that all we need to do is concentrate on what is before our eyes. . As your photo leader I’ll always be available to provide guidance on composition, lighting, setting up shots and helping you develop your unique photographic style. Daily Individual and group photo critiques will be provided.
Epic Photo Tours has been a leader in photographic expeditions since 2007. The trips that they offer are to visually stimulating and culturally intact destinations. They only offer 6 trips per year and have full enrollment for their Kashmir, Omo Valley, and Ethiopia photo tours. The hotels chosen are all upscale and the local guide on their Myanmar trip is known as one of the top ten in the region.
The Myanmar trip will have only 11 photographers, and is open to photo enthusiasts of all levels. Myanmar is on all travel photographers radar most ‘bucket lists’, and is undergoing rapid changes, so see it before these changes come to fruition.
The trip fee includes all meals and lodging.
